Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TDIH '77--Amazing!

I was looking for something to listen to this morning so I turned to TDIH for ideas and found a '77 show that I was unfamiliar with. Take this with a grain of salt because I just finished the 1st set, but, if this continues, it will be my new favorite show from '77. The entire first set sizzles with intensity. It Must have been the Roses, Dupree's Diamond Blues and Let it Grow are all stand-out versions. Looking ahead to the setlist for the 2nd set, it appears there is nowhere to go but up! Enjoy!

I discovered this one many months ago when bolstering my '77 collection.

Gotta love the "Meet the Jones Gang" intro to set 2. Along with Jerry's - "freshly deported from Canada" line.

And yea - the whole thing rocks from beginning to end.

This is a fun show. I especially like the AUD as you can hear the audience much better than in this MTX.

So much energy on this night, but unfortunately it sounds a little sloppy in more than a few places. I have this mental image of a train about to jump track with everyone barely holding on. I think I read in a review of one of the other copies that the band was dosed this evening, which could account for that. See 5/11/78 for more spun, albeit somewhat sloppy fun.

I had overlooked this one until a few weeks ago, too. This splendid matrix, made by laying a Jerry Moore AUD over a nice, clear SBD, retains the audience ambiance at the ends and beginnings of songs. The performances are unusually upbeat, almost frenetic at times, and contain lovely harmonies as well as spendid jams. They seemed to pushing all the edges this night.
